White House Declines CDC Contact Tracing

Will establish its own tracing effort. 

The White House announced earlier this week that it would not be partnering with the CDC to track down anyone who may have come in contact with those who had caught COVID-19 at a Rose Garden event. The White House stated that it would not be disclosing the private information of those who had recently come in contact with members of the president’s administration since discovering President Trump tested positive for the virus. 

A White House spokesperson responded to the question of what efforts President Trump’s administration would be taking to stop the localized spread of the virus saying, “The White House has plans and procedures in place that incorporate current CDC guidelines and best practices for limiting COVID-19 exposure and has established a robust contact tracing program led by the White House Medical Unit with CDC integration.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would protect those who may have been exposed to the virus. 
  • That God would heal the president.
  • For those who may need to quarantine after exposure.
